Is there a way to restore a Confluence page back to its original place in the page tree structure?

Scott Derderian February 26, 2024

I had a user that inadvertently deleted many pages (with Child Pages - 100s of pages).  I am aware that the pages can be restored one by one back to the root of the space.

I am wondering if anyone has a solution for restoring them back to the original tree structure of the space.

TIA!

@Scott Derderian You can always restore the Confluence backup.

If you have backups created every day, then restore the one that is the latest before the accident. It should be very easy.

Of course, the price is that you will lose the edits that were made in the meanwhile.

Hi @Scott Derderian 

I am part of Revyz. I see that you are on an on-premises confluence instance. Unfortunately there is no good solution there.

If you had a Cloud Confluence instance along with our Confluence Data Manager app we could get you back the pages along with child pages (how many ever they are) with a couple of clicks.

Thanks

HI @Scott Derderian 

 

I do not think it's possible but if you have a test, pre-prod instance you may be able to find them on these instances and be able to find the previous parent. Then you can move them back manually or using Scriptrunner if you have this app.
